Many people love to participate in reality shows. They love the drama and the popularity that comes with it. But some of the reality stars also get in trouble with legal authorities. And, more often than not, this trouble is with child care or addiction. Teen Mom’s Ryan Edwards has also been a victim of addiction.
The TLC star had first appeared on 16 And Pregnant. He shares a son with his ex-partner and co-star Maci Bookout. Audiences know him as an avid drug user. And recently, the court ordered his arrest in a drug-trial case.
Teen Mom: Ryan Edwards Put In Jail For Drug Use
Audiences are aware of Ryan Edwards’ high drug use. He also has many arrest charges and even DUIs under his belt. His latest achievement, though, is his arrest in a drug-use case. The ex Teen Mom star had appeared in court for his hearing of a DUI case. It was at the Hamilton County General Sessions Court. Ryan had also gotten into a bar fight on November 25.
During the hearing on December 5, Attorney Coty Wamp wanted to know if the TLC star could pass the drug screening. Since Ryan’s last drug screening was on November 8, it had been almost a month ago. And there was also a report that Ryan had not taken his last vivitol shot. The attorney had concluded that this was why Ryan had gotten into the bar fight.
Wamp was adamant about getting Ryan tested for drugs. He also stated that Ryan would go to jail if he “did not pass” the test. And the star has to submit a “report of his continuing care and follow-up.” If Ryan fails to do so, “the state will file this petition.”
However, Judge Gary Stanes was at his patience’s end. He expressed his frustration, saying – “You had chance after chance after chance.” Stanes demanded Ryan go into custody. However, the results of his drug screening will be available by Friday. Attorney Wamp also said that Ryan wasn’t “doing CADAS outpatient.” So this might spell trouble for the star.
The ex Teen Mom star had asked Judge Stanes if he could speak during the hearing. However, the judge declined this request. And the cops handcuffed Ryan to take him out of the courtroom.
Teen Mom: Ryan Edwards Got Into A Bar Fight
In the long list of Ryan Edwards’s ‘wrong-doings’ is also a bar fight. The Sun’s video indicated the Teen Mom star was in a bar in Tennessee. Westbound Honky-Tonk, Chattanooga, Tennessee, was the ‘crime scene.’
The video also had proof that the bar bouncers had dragged Ryan out of the bar. And the star was slurring “his words.” He also “appeared out of it.” Eyewitness account states that the bouncers dragged Ryan out around 10:30 pm. Ryan’s rumored girlfriend, Amanda Conner, was also a part of the fight.
According to the witness, the couple was “with a group.” They also said that someone had “grabbed” Amanda “by the face.” And so Conner had “started slinging chairs.” That was how the fight started before the bouncers escorted Amanda and Ryan out. Judge Stanes says that Ryan had not taken his Vivitrol shot. And that was why he fought in the bar – he was under drug influence. For more such news, see TV Season & Spoilers.
